De-Googling tip: When looking to get rid of a google service, make sure to evaluate whether you even need an alternative. There might be services you were using just because they were offered.

An example for me: Google Docs. I really don't need the ability to edit ALL my docs from a web browser. In fact, it feels kind of nice to have a bit of separation from them.


@blaubachn moreover, you may be not needing possibility to make rich text documents at all! For me, 99.999% of my document files are Markdown files which I can read at any device I want without any special application to do it!

@alexcleac Yep! I've been slowly replacing all of my documents with text/markdown as well. I have just a few docs that I want to keep formatted like my resume and a few spreadsheets for calculations.
